Reviving a refrigerated starter
I am new to the sourdough game and thought that I was doing so well as my starter took off over the first 3 days. The problem was that I had an unexpected business trip that I had to go on and needed to refrigerate my new starter.
I have been trying to revive the starter for several days now but I am just getting a whole lot of Hooch and no activity. I have been feeding 2:1 KA AP flour and 80 F tap water 2-3 times/day but it just wont take off like it did from the get go. One thing I have not been doing is discarding as I feed. I was under the impression that you only discarded as the beasties grew.
Please help...I dont want to start over again.
